PREFACE TO 1921-22 EDITION. 



WE have again diligently and carefully collected and 
arranged the useful information regarding Buteshire 
as it is to-day — with its Officials, Householders and Busi- 
ness people — and once more have pleasure in giving the 
compilation the honours of the Press. 

Notwithstanding the strain, economies, and consider- 
able increases in the prices of material, labour and conees- 
sions consequent upon the Great War, we have again made 
sacrifices to produce oar Directory as full as formerly — 
and that without any further advance in the tariff. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, with prompt receipt of orders, we keep 
permanent this decided benefit. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire be omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything be brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

[For a number of years we have corresponded, per the 
International Language, with persons in all civilised lands, 
and in our spare pages we again give glimpses of some our 
propaganda — which, we trust, will here interest those who 
hope for international peace, good will and harmony.] 

Those who wish List of Householders arranged in 
Streets or Districts can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes. Notwithstanding the upheavals of the 
great world war, our country as well as the glorious British 
Empire remains intact ; and will, we hope (in spite of the 
numbing effects of selfishness and laziness), by righteous 
and strenuous endeavours, recuperate, and be strenthened 
to assist the world to make up for the " years which the 
locusts have eaten" — and are not yet satisfied.

COUNTY OF BUTE. 

THE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth of Clyde, viz. 
— Bijte, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrshire Coist; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnock, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothksay and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14,151; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In 
1891 it was 18,248 (8,057 males and 10,197 females) ; and in 1901, 18,786 (8,412 
males and 10,374 females) — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2*1 per cent 
There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 
For 1911, the figures were as follows : — 

Males. Females. Total. Revised total. 
Arran - - - 2,169 2,402 4,571 4,628* 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 6,781 11,799 11,851 

Cumbrae - - - 704 992 1,696 1,707 

•The increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar- 
General compared with the returns lodged with the Sheriff-Clerk, 
may be accounted for by the enumeration of the shipping, 
the decreases since 1901 are as follows : Arran, 209; Bute, 330 ; Cumbrae, 62— 601_ 

The population at the postponed 1921 census, for this county, was 33,711 — being an 

increase of 15,525 over 1911.

Parish of North Bute. 

THIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Bannockburn. 

At the last census, the parish contained 449 males and 518 females , total, 1718 
— being a decrease of 88 since 1901, which was an increase of 150 over 1891. 

(For Courts and Court Officials, Justices of the Peace, and County 
Boards, see County Lists).

BOOK-KE EPING. 

MR HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOR PRACTICAL INSTRUC- 
TION are conducted during the two Winter Quarters — 
October till December and January till March. 

PRIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 

Shorthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful- 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing, 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie, being an official of the 
Universal Esperanto Association, is in touch with important regions all over the world, 
and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere — notwithstanding their different 
national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be ' ' Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
' 'great tribulation "— caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones was repeaetedly evidenced during the past troubles. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth " The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
have been overthrown. Righteousness is being exalted, and frightfulness loathed. The 
longed-for league of nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrities, and 
much service and suffering. 

Book-Keeping". — Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to- 
Date Business Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutaea have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, a 
practical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & OOY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 
are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners.

With a view to this scientifically-evolved and easily-acquired Lan- 
guage becoming the means of intercommunication after the War, 
business people in several countries are satisfactorily preparing for 
" the good time coming." Britons learned Esperanto sooner than 
they could the Russian alphabet, and foreigners acquire a fluent 
use of Esperanto long, long before they can understand our words 
and the fickle and changing sounds of the letters of our adopted 
alphabet.

CHAR M of the BEA 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
A hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 
priate. 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxfulls of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is one of the acknowledgments we received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec, 1918. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rothesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad that enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens can go through the post at letter or parcel rates.

LA LINGVO^INTERNCIA. 

This international language, ESPERANTO, haying emerged through 
indifference, ridicule, opposition and rivalry, and its practical useful- 
ness heen repeatedly demonstrated, some information regarding its 
present position may not be uninteresting to the general public — for 
whose benefit it is intended, and that fact is proved wherever tried. 

Esperanto Congresses have been held annually since 1905 at Bou- 
logne-sur-Mer, France ; Geneva, Switzerland ; Cambridge, England ; 
Dresden, Germany; Barcelona, Spain; Washington, U.S.A.; Antwerp, 
Belgium; and Cracow, Polish Austria. The ninth met in 1913 at 
Berne, Switzerland ; while the 1914 Kongreso would have been held 
in Paris but for the intervention of the world war ; and Bonnie Scot- 
land was fixed for the 1915 rendezvous. The world-war prevented, 
and we are purged from the subtle and arrogant military hatred, greed, 
" kultur," and " frightfulness ; " but the set-back will, in time, be 
overcome. Humanity shall yet see the,; Sun of Righteousness arise with 
healing in His wings, and the promised peace on earth and good-will to 
men shall reign "where'er the sun doth his successive journeys run." 

These international assemblages have increasingly led, and in th« 
future will more and more increasingly lead, to post Congressional 
Excursions throughout the land chosen for the annual rendezvous. 

Besides these annual international Esperanto Congresses, there are 
national gatherings in many lands, and local social meetings galore. 
The young and vigorous Universala Esperanto Asocio have also an- 
nual Congresses : the first was most appropriately held in Europe, but 
in America it simultaneously had a demonstration. The Universala 
Esperanto Asocio is a thoroly practical institution. Through its very 
widely circulated newspaper, and its delegates, vice-delegates and 
sub-delegates, consuls, Esperanto offices, enterprises and associations 
represented in many cities and towns of different lands, it manages 
departments for scientific research, and the many forms of business and 
social intercourse among the inhabitants of all nations. Besides these 
rapidly growing activities, there are the organisations of the individual 
national societies, with their hundreds of periodical publications and 
translations of standard works into the key language — which anyone 
may understand and enjoy. 

National meetings of Esperantists continued to be held annually 
during the Great War, at which sam-ide-anoj from other lands were 
welcomed, but Internaciaj Kongresoj were interfered with. The 10th, 
at Paris in 1914, was strangled: the 11th, which was to have taken 
place at Edinburgh in 1915, became La Tula Hondo Esperanto Kon- 
greso, in San Francisco, instead of the Tuta Pacfico Kongreso arranged 
for in connection with the opening of the Panama Canal, when many 
countries were represented. The 12th Kongreso took place at the 
Hague, in August, 1920, and the next — the 13th — will be held at 
Prague, in August, 1921. 

The country (i.e., France) whose language is adopted for interna- 
tional diplomacy is leading in its propaganda of this language--the oom- 
mon and direct bond of reciprocal communication between all willing 
members of the human family. QE0 mGQIE Oeligito, U.E.A

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years. The Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
for them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for possible additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue 1 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland." 

Price to Subscribers, Two Shillings ; to Non-Subscribers, 
Three Shillings. Postage, Threepence.

IS OOMING- 
Not Through Covetousness, Selfishness or Force, 

but by Good Will, Sacrifice and Service. 

(Could Industrious People transformed into Horse Leeches bring anything but Ruin?) 
There are l,5oo, 000,000 Human Beings in the World, 
Speaking over 6000 Languages. 

and Professing Thousands of Religions. 

More than Christians believe that la Homaro vivos kunfratare. 

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Humanity 011 
the Earth, and when we fell from the high estate in which we were created by 
oar disobedience, Jesas Christ redeems us, his Gospel of "peace on earth and good 
will to men" is to be preached to every creature, and " the gates of hell shall not prevail 
against it." The confusion of tongues at Babel is being followed by the gift of the 
p -rfect language foretold by Zephaniah. The walls of Jericho fell before the sounding 
of the rams' horns at the command of Joshua, and the lingual walls which have hither- 
to divided the nations, need no longer, through the genius of another Israelite, prevent 
'all people that on earth do dwell" — whatever their creeds, colours or idiosyncrasies — 
from satisfactorily communicating with each other by means of

Esperanto, like English, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico- 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
ysar, Was the means of causing the transfer of the lith to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a Tuta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreso. 

The 1 2th Kongreso Internacia was held at the Hague, Holland, last year, the 
13th is to be held this year in Prague, and Scotland is to be similarly honoured soon. 

Esperanto— the language of peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kara lingvo. It would doubtless bo used at the great Jamboree in London, a 
meeting so happy and harmonious that it was appropriately closed by the singing of 
Auld Langsyne. Esperanto is more easily learned than alphabets of some languages, 
and as it has no politics, religion, or physical force or selfish aims of any nation, but 
is pre-eminently pro bono publico, is peculiarly fitted for cementing and making per 
inanent and happy the coming league of nations.

of years, only scholars could ever read or write it. s Realising 
be difficulty of educating the masses, a National Educational Con- 
erence, met at the end of 1919, and urged on the Minister of Educa-

HIGGIE & CO., Printers & Publishers, Rothesay. 



The Popularity of 

Hig^ie's Scots Publications 
Abroad. 

Typical letter received in pre-war days : — 

Montreal, July 29th, 1913. 
" I was sh own a copy of your publication, 'Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, 
while up country, and am desirous of possessing a few of those interest- 
ing books ; so realistically depicting places 1 have visited, and 'brither 
Scots.' . Kindly inform me if such can be procured in this country or 
U.S.A., and, if so, where? I would not mind going 500 or 600 miles to 

fet a few of your small books — so full of interest to the fellow Scot men 
come in contact with here. . . The party who showed me th eir copy 
had it for years I shall be glad if you let me know if you issue other 
Publications along the same lines as the ABC 'Resorts of Scotland. ' 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Rothesay. 

We are now preparing a post-war edition. 

Generous Terms to Scottish Societies throughout 
the world 



These Publications are appreciated by intelligent persons outside 

Scottish, connection, and we sent, direct from our head office, 

copies of Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, &a, 

to the Red Cross Hospitals In Scotland, 

giving a welcome to the brave Sailors and Soldi-rs who had been 
fighting in the Great War for Peace on Earth and Good Will to 
Men, and*we received many thanks for our consideration. 

One never knows the good received in unexpected quarters. A 
Scottish soldier, while in an Egyptian hospital, "swapped" 
something with a fellow patient for a booklet on Pitman's short- 
hand. He learned the art, introduced it into the British Army, 
and presided at the Glasgow celebration of the inventor's centen- 
ary— when he indicated the wonderful success of his innovation.

BUT COUNTY DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENT. 



The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind prinedand 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with Itothe- 
say -were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated), 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute(f rom 
which more interest is respectfully solicited.) 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
from pre-war issue, but that advance is not equal 
to the increased cost of production : We desire not 
the curtailing of our information, but the con- 
tinuing of evoryhing as full as possible.

The Commercial Library, 21 Miller Street, Glasgow. 
18th July, 1918. 
Messrs Higgie &Co., Publishers, Rothesay. 

We have to thank you for the copy of the Bute County Directory, addressed to 
the Stirling Library. Since November, 1916, all Directories have been transferred to 
The COMMERCIAL LIBRARY, 21 Miller Street. This library has been established 
for the use of business men, and. as since its opening, we have had over 49,000 visit- 
tors, more than one third of whom consulted the Directories, you will appreciate the 
publicity your Directory obtains. 

Yours faithfully, 

Jiro Phillips Librai:an. 



This Directory came out regularly during the 
years of the Great War. 

The Opinions of the Press on the latter issues are 
as complimentary as formerly. 



The ' ' ca' canny" and similar anti-British tactiet are paralysing progress and pre- 
venting prosperity. Unless there is a determined rivival of Industry, what must 
the harvest be? 

People are willing to spend money on Holidays as well as on Business, but the. 
blight of strikes, love of idleness and dreams of getting something for nothing , are 
up in opposition. 

The Revival of the Touring Season. 

The following sample enquiry letter was received after the War was over : — 

Sandown Station Road, Stechford, Birmingham, 12th June, 1919. 
Messrs Higgie & Co., ABC COAST GUIDE, &c. 

I shall be much obliged if you kindly send me names of any apartments you can 
recommend at Craigmore, Wemyss Bay, Millport, Craigendoran, and Tarber' * My 
Guide is 1904. Thanking you in anticipation, yours faithfully, Wm. T. Jokbs. 
"Districts included in The Coast Guide. 

The above is a. "ample oj the Pleasures' the public are losing by the "ca' canny" 
policy and the blight of strikes. 

Pleasure excursions are now a pleasant memory, but the end of the coal strike has 
allowed a blink of what may again be in store. 

The callous wrecking of Busy Hives of Industry throughaut the country is much worse. 
The new " control " u a decided deterioration, and should be actively abhored. 
It is steady Regeneration the world needs now.
